The first annual Nowhere Developers Conference, a one day, pure-tech conference for software developers and engineers, is being held in Bentonville, Arkansas on March 15, 2018. The conference will feature speakers from Google, LinkedIn, Angelhack, Mailchimp, Mozilla, and more, speaking about the state of the industry, software engineering, emerging technology such as machine learning, cryptocurrency, augmented reality, and the region’s growing technology ecosystem.
“Connectivity, affordable living, big city amenities, and an increasing diversity of job opportunities are transforming Northwest Arkansas into an emerging tech hub,” said Dan Sanker, President & CEO of CaseStack, Inc. and SupplyPike. “The Nowhere Developers Conference will expedite that by bringing together world-class talent and providing opportunities for cross-industry networking and education.”
Since Northwest Arkansas sits at the center of a rich developer community that stretches from Kansas City, to Dallas, to Memphis and St. Louis, Nowhere Developers is partnering with Fayetteville, AR-based company SupplyPike and nonprofit Startup Junkie Consulting to bring this conference to the region. The conference will be held at Record in downtown Bentonville. Featured speaker engagements, innovation spotlights, and interactive expert break-out sessions will give attendees the opportunity to learn from industry leaders and network with fellow attendees that share similar interests.
“We must develop, attract, and retain the best technology talent – and the best way that’s going to happen is if we build a community of developers where they feel like they can learn, grow and have new opportunities,” said Jeff Amerine, Founding Principal of Startup Junkie Consulting. “We are happy and honored to support these efforts, as long as they are developer-centric and developer led.”
